Katie Gilbert

I started my career in family law in 2006, and my professional and personal experiences have taught me the importance of ending a marriage with as much dignity as possible. Prior to joining Rech Law, I practiced with another family law firm in Charlotte.

I’m a native Charlottean and graduated in the top ten percent of my class during law school. While there, I worked in a family advocacy clinic, where I had the opportunity to represent parents whose children were in Department of Social Services’ custody. I also interned with the Mecklenburg County Family Court Administrator’s Office, the Honorable Louis A. Trosch, Jr., and in the Legal Department for Matthews-based Family Dollar, Inc., as well as volunteered with the Mecklenburg County Self-Serve Center.

I became a Board-Certified Family Law Specialist in 2019, earning a status that only 3.9% of my colleagues have achieved.

In 2023, I completed Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Training to allow me to become a collaborative attorney.

Prior to attending law school, I was a legal assistant to a family law practitioner for almost seven years. I also volunteered for the Mecklenburg County Guardian ad litem program for over two years. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Queens University of Charlotte, where I majored in American Political Science and was named Political Science Student of the Year. While at Queens, I was an active member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our kids, and our Labrador retriever mix. I also volunteer with the Yancey County Humane Society and the Humane Society of Charlotte. I enjoy local politics and working on political campaigns.

Practice Philosophy

I am passionate about my clients and believe in a holistic approach to family law, including divorce. I recognize that, for most clients, this is one of the most difficult and stressful times they will ever go through. I strive to get to know clients on a personal level so that I fully understand their situation. I am practical with my advice and hope to help clients make decisions that make the most sense for their specific situation.
